The world premiere of an original opera based on the play by Romulus Linney. Music by Larry Bell, libretto by Linney and Andrea Olmstead. Bell conducts a cast of 22 opera singers and electronic instrument players (all instrumentalists are Berklee faculty). Fully staged, directed by Eve Summer.
Many of our brilliantly talented singers are also members of Boston Opera Collaborative, so I have costumed them before.
Everyone sounds beautiful and looks appropriate disheveled. And there are snakes.
The Book of Mark, Chapter 16, verses 17 and 18:
“And these signs shall follow them that believe. They shall speak with new tongues. They shall take up serpents.”
